Marc Cherry is back with another delicious primetime soap after his long-running ABC hit Desperate Housewives wrapped its run in 2012. With Housewives-alum Eva Longoria also serving as an executive producer, Lifetime's upstairs-downstairs series Devious Maids is loads of summer fun filled with endless loads of dirty laundry to unravel.
After the death of a maid named Flora (Paula Garces), the lives of a tight-knit group of maids—Rosie (Dania Ramirez), Carmen (Roselyn Sanchez), Valentina (Edy Ganem) and Zoila (Judy Reyes), is turned upside-down as they struggle to keep a secret while going on with their daily lives. Enter Marisol (Ana Ortiz of Ugly Betty fame), a new maid with a secret of her own, who upon her employment seems to take a heightened interest in the death of Flora. As this group of maids work for their filthy rich Beverly Hills employers, they each have ambitions of their own that they wish to fulfill: Rosie is fighting to bring her son to America; Carmen uses her good looks and sizzling attitude to kickstart a career in the music industry; and Zoila is doing whatever she possibly can to prevent her daughter Valentina from falling in love with their employer's son.
Devious Maids boasts a stellar cast led by Ana Ortiz, who brings the spark and spunk just like she did on ABC's hit Ugly Betty as Hilda Suarez. Also notable are TV veterans Grant Show, Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky and Pretty Little Liars' heartthrob Drew Van Acker, whose dynamic characters bring the comedy to the series in their self-absorbed, fame hungry and superficial pursuits.
It's a fun show with some intriguing twists and turns, Lifetime's Devious Maids premieres June 23rd at 10/9c!
